This is the quintessential unauthorized biography. The book has only eight pages of plates, and nearly all the pictures appear to be from newspaper files. There are no family photographs, and the few photographs of teammates, coaches, and friends again seem to be stock photographs. The endnotes consist only of secondary sources. The direct quotes cited are from newspaper accounts and previous biographies and autobiographies. The book is also sloppily prepared. The endnotes begin with number three, not number one, and the text itself has no numbers for the endnotes. In addition, the index is strictly a name index. No topics are indexed, even though the author discusses in some length such issues as the counterculture in San Francisco, the burgeoning drug problem in the NFL, and so on.
Having said all that, if you are an admirer of Joe Montana and his accomplishments or are a fan of the San Francisco 49ers, or both, you probably will want to read this biography.
